James looks back on the queer flavours of childhood in 1980s suburbia, and an early taste of the definitive bonds and disruptions of adulthood.
James Beach works in theatre and has directed and produced several independent productions in Sydney since he graduated from NIDA in 2007. The list of credits is long so I won’t list it all – look him up and go to his stuff. His recollections of growing up to the songs of George Michael – gathered at the time of his death – are well worth a look.
